Duraluxe is a unique powder coated HD aluminium product that offers UV resistance together with anti-graffiti properties delivering innovation for full colour outdoor signage as never seen before.
Traditionally, full colour transfer decoration of aluminium panels printed using any sublimation ink have proved unsuitable or acceptable for outdoor use due to poor durability against the effects of UV, graffiti and weathering. The unique patented “double” powder coating process also enables the panels to be trimmed and formed easily avoiding any flaking or sharp edges. Duraluxe when decorated is perfect for high quality signage requirements and a cost effective alternative to vitreous enamel signage with stunning full colour imaging. What is Powder Coating?
Powder coated aluminium involves applying dry paint to an aluminium product by way of electrostatically charging the powder and then spraying it onto the product. Decoral’s exclusive patented aluminium coating technology allows for perfect surfaces to decorate every time.
Examples of powder coating aluminium products are windows for residential and commercial projects, appliances, outdoor furniture, elevator doors, decks and railings, and even aluminium wheels.
Powder coating is a durable and results in a finished product that withstands harsh environmental conditions. These include extreme UV exposure, salt spray and heavy pollution.
